A small question about overclocking .

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone ,
I was wondering if you get a 3570k instead of a 3570 mean it will last longer ? Or if you get a 7970 instead of a 670 it will last longer as it can be overclocked better ?A friend of my was wondering if getting a 3570k + a Z77 would 'last longer' than what im having now which is a 3470 + asrock b75 pro3m.

Im not sure if this question makes any sense i wanna ask it to clear my doubts tongue.gif I guess what im trying to ask is , if something is better at being overclock last longer?

By "last longer" do you mean that it won't be a bottleneck (preventing your system from going faster)? If so the an unlocked processor like the 3570k is better because overclocking will allow you to improve it's performance later on.

Im not so sure how to put it , like 7970 can be overclocked to be almost on par with the 680 , and the 680 can 'last longer' in the sense that they can play newer games that comes out maybe a few years later as compared to a 660? Do i make any sense? tongue.gif

Yes, in general the higher-end the part, or the ability to overclock, will give you longer viability of the part.

However, it is usually not a good idea to pay for the very top-end - it is better to buy good price/performance parts (like a GTX 670/7950) and then replace them every few years, especially on the GPU side. GPU technology changes quickly enough that the $1000 GTX 690 won't end up lasting twice as long as the $500 GTX 680 (for example). CPUs have greater longevity - so a 3 year old i7-920 is still going strong today.

yes z77 is the best chipset for overclocking and the 3570 is a great chip to start out with but dont use the stock cooler

As previously said, the Z77 boards are a great piece for overclocking on. Also, the "K" designation at the end of the CPU name means it is unlocked, which lets you overclock it quite a bit more than the non-"K" chips. The unlocked versions will, in a sense, last longer because they will let you get more performance out of the same chip to stay higher performance for a longer time without having to replace it.
Keep in mind that any significant overclocking typically can never be done on the stock cooling that comes with the CPU. Be prepared to have to buy a new, higher end aftermarket cooler to be able to handle the extra heat loads that overclocking produces. Hope it helps answer your question if the others somehow didn't.
Btw, not a bad choice on the parts thumb.gif

Thanks ! By the way , what are the differences between all the Z77 board ,what does the more expensive board gives you? Theres like 7 of them from AsRock . Kinda read alot of good things about AsRock so i guess i'll ask my friend to get one from them as i read that they are the 'bang for buck' boards

Mostly the differences are going to be in connectivity. Some have better sound chips, or additional SATA or USB ports, different video connectors, additional power phases, different number or combination of PCIe slots, stuff like that. For the most part, none of that really matters for performance since they all use the same chipset, and the memory controller and PCIe bus is on the CPU. Unless you really intend to push the overclock just get the cheapest board that has the stuff you need and a layout you are happy with. The Extreme4 is a popular choice.
